What a great project this was! A young professional couple with 2 kids under eight, this family bought a great home with a sunken living room, dining room and eat – in kitchen on one floor, family room below, bedrooms upstairs. They wanted to raise the sunken living room, and reallocate space to achieve an expansive kitchen with a separate eating area open to both family room below and the living room. They also wanted to view from the kitchen to the pool in the backyard, so we designed a view behind the hood into the yard. The small entryway from dining room to the kitchen was expanded to a large opening with double pocket doors. New family room cabinetry complements the kitchen, both fireplaces were remodeled and changed to gas , engineered wood flooring put in the entire main level of the house. New windows, two new sliding doors and a new front door, new carpet, new paint throughout, additional storage place beneath kitchen eating area, as well as two wine fridges and a cool bar complete a transitional, clean and contemporary look with mid-century modern decor.
